Midweek Magnolias Challenge #149-"Autumn Colours"

Happy Wednesday dear blogging friends!

After a busy weekend things are calming down a bit...we have my Son & DIL's two dogs as they're away on their honeymoon!!  Add my two to the mix and it's still a little hectic here!

On to today's Midweek Magnolias we are starting our brand new challenge and it's a super easy one...with all the gorgeous colours outside right now it would be hard not to get inspiration just by looking at all the fabulous fall colours...YES...our theme is "Autumn Colours"!!  As always our most wonderful sponsor is Magnolia Sweden!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first picture for a closer view/slideshow...
I've started with a simply square base...
DP is Bo Bunny from the "Apple Cider" collection...
I used "Mini Bricks" stencil  from The Crafter's Workshop to make the matt behind my image...used crackle texture paste...let dry and then sponged with Fired Brick, Barn Door and Rusty Hinge Ranger distress ink pads...
I stamped and masked Tilda/bench then sponged with Rusty Hinge, Marigold, Brushed Corduroy and Bundled Sage Ranger distress ink pads...
 sweet little "Resting Tilda" is from the Spring Fever 2016 collection..
the bench is from an older collection (sorry can't remember which one)...
coloured with my copics...
accented with gel pen and some liquid pearls...
 the die cuts are from the Magnolia Kit Volume 6...
butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch...

Now it's all up to you...go outside and take a look at Fall in all it's splendour then check out the gorgeous creations that my Midweek Magnolias team mates have to show you then come on over a join us!!
